FDA Grants Breakthrough Designation to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Device for Bipolar Depression
The system uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), a noninvasive form of neuromodulation, to stimulate areas of the brain that are underactive.
A Potentially Powerful Treatment for Refractory Depression
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of treatment-resistant depression since 2008.

TMS uses magnetic pulses to stimulate areas of the brain affected by mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD and addiction.
Researchers Discover Novel Brain Mechanism Connecting Depression with Bad Sleep
It is also suggested that while transcranial magnetic stimulation is a growing area of research as a novel depression treatment, targeting the lateral orbitofrontal cortex with this technique could be a beneficial future treatment.
